Story

The turn of the twentieth century woman's platinum watch and matching chain reflect the height of jewelry fashion of La Belle Époque and the gilded age of New York - a fairy tale part of history from 1871 to 1914 when the very rich of the world enjoyed an existence outside that of the realities of the day.

From the use of neo-classical designs to guilloche engraving on the circular face of the watch, this time piece is an authentic example of Edwardian style and elegance.

Designed as a pendant cum watch with matching chain, the back of the platinum watch is embellished with a diamond rim and a center foliate applique also appointed with diamonds and seed pearls.

The front displays a circular dial decorated with guilloche enamel and Arabic numeral indicators surrounded by a slightly bulbous platinum case.

As a bale, platinum batons set with diamonds and seed pearls attach to a matching necklace chain. In all, one hundred forty-eight diamonds, total weight of 1.10 carats (H-J color; SI1-2 clarity) grace the jewel.

Their details: fifteen old European cuts and one hundred thirty-three rose cut diamonds join eleven natural freshwater pearls with an average diameter of 2.5 mm.

The piece is crafted by the firm of Dreicer & Co., one of the top high-end retail jewelers who competed with Tiffany & Co., and Black, Ball & Co. Established around 1866, the firm quickly employed state of the art technology and the advanced use of platinum in the manufacture of their exclusive products.
